Alles ist gut (D 1985) HD-Remastered


Published 2014


Debut documentary film essay and initial film work of Joachim Polzer from 1985.


A meditation on what's important in life 
plus a study in film editing and in human voice montage.

You may notice paragons and inspirations from Berry Bermanges' "Four Inventions for Radio" from 1964/1965, from movies like "Sans Soleil" (1983) or "My Dinner With André" (1981), which made a great impression on Joachim Polzer at the time. 

"Alles ist gut" was one of the first films shot in Germany in Super 16 film gauge utilizing a modified "ARRI 16 SR" film camera from Arnold & Richter in Munich. (Please note the camera scratching the emulsion on the boarder-section between the Regular16 and Super16 film frame hence producing a lot of dust particles, too!.)

HD-Remastered from original elements (from the original camera negative and from the original audio tape recordings) in 2014 for the 30th anniversary of this debut work. Retouching work was done in soft mode to perserve the film's material character (grain, scratches, splices etc.) In other words: This remastering was not done in "retouching to death" mode and is not intended to be.
